Nothing screams gay pride like Chucky! SYFY has planned a big “Pride of Chucky” movie marathon that will officially kick off tomorrow on the network. The all-day Child’s Play spectacular begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. ET and spill over into Thursday, June 10.

The special marathon plans to call attention to the horror series’ LGBTQ+ elements while serving up some big summer scares. Of course, the marathon actually more than one purpose since the network is also debuting a brand new Chucky television series set to debut this fall. Original Child’s Play mastermind Don Mancini is returning to the well-loved horror franchise.

Mancini himself announced the marathon news on his Twitter with a SYFY-exclusive video about how the franchise has transformed over the years into a LGBTQ+-friendly space, saying that as of Bride of Chucky, he “started to deliberately inject some LGBTQ elements into the franchise. As a gay guy, it’s something that’s increasingly important to me.”

Jennifer Tilly, who voices fan-favorite character Tiffany, echoed Mancini’s sentiments, adding that she had always believed the “Chucky” movies were gay-friendly.

Longtime series star Jennifer Tilly, who voices fan-favorite character Tiffany, agreed and said, “I think a lot of the ‘Chucky’ movies have been very gay friendly.”
